Apple does not permit customers who have purchased an iPhone, cellular iPad, or Apple Watch to activate the item with the mobile provider Sprint, which has since gone out of business. Also, Apple has removed any and all references to Sprint from its official website and online shop.
A change introduced today by Apple is the removal of Sprint from the list of available connectivity options during the checkout process for new purchases. Before this point, Sprint consumers could technically activate Sprint devices by connecting them to the T-Mobile network, and Apple featured Sprint carrier deals.
Because T-Mobile and Sprint successfully concluded their merger in 2020, this move is not likely to have a significant impact on a large number of individuals. Many Sprint customers now have accounts with T-Mobile after the changeover. They are technically no longer clients of Sprint, but there may still be some folks out there who still need to complete the switch over to T-Mobile.
Although T-Mobile began merging Sprint spectrum into its network in April 2020, subscribers of Sprint have technically been utilizing the T-Mobile network since shortly after the acquisition.
T-Mobile should be contacted for assistance by former Sprint customers with problems with their service. These customers must transfer their Sprint accounts to T-Mobile to activate their handsets.
